CORK County Council’s Severe Weather Assessment Team convened this morning at 9.30am.

A statement issued afterwards said that Storm Callum passed through the county overnight, resulting in some localised minor flooding, a number of fallen trees and debris on roads.

Cork County Council’s Fire Service and Road crews continue to respond. High Tide levels have peaked and passed without incident.    

The R624 in Cobh is currently reduced to single lane due to a landslide but expected to open before noon today.

‘We continue to ask road users and all members of the public to exercise due caution and expect the unexpected particularly in relation to potential debris and surface water on the roads,’ the Council said this morning.

Members of the public who wish to report issues/incidents at any time can contact Cork County Council on 021 4276891. In the event of disruption to water supplies, persons should contact Irish Water at 1850278278.

Regular updates will be provided on Cork County Council’s website, and also on our social media channels, twitter @Corkcoco and Facebook @CorkCoCo or register for alerts on Cork County Alerts.
